NATIONAL HIGHWAY SAFETY RESEARCH PRIORITIES

RESEARCH PRIORITIES ARE EXAMINED AS OPPOSED TO ACTION PROGRAMS. A CASE IS PRESENTED FOR MORE ATTENTION TO FULL SYSTEM RESEARCH WITHOUT THE PRIOR DECISION OF THE ULTIMATE ACTION PROGRAM. IT IS ARGUED THAT ADEQUATE KNOWLEDGE FOR THE PROBLEM IS NOT CURRENTLY BEING GENERATED. THE RECOMMENDATION IS MADE THAT RESEARCH PRIORITY UMBRELLAS, WITH SIGNIFICANT LONG-TERM SUPPORT, BE ESTABLISHED WITH GOALS IN THE AREAS OF: DRIVER-BEHAVIOR-MODIFICATION; VEHICLE SYSTEM CRASHWORTHINESS; TRAUMA MANAGEMENT; AND RESOURCE ALLOCATION. PRIORITY CONCEPTS ARE PRESENTED THAT WOULD BROADEN CURRENT RESEARCH PROGRAMS AND GENERATE FULLER UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROBLEM ELEMENTS. THE CITIZEN-DRIVER MUST BE MORE TIGHTLY INTEGRATED INTO THE SAFETY PROCESS BOTH THROUGH HIS VEHICLE AND THROUGH THE OVERALL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.
